Don't be embarassed about not passing. I have several girls working for me who have taken more than one try to pass their boards. First go back and study. Get support of your friends and co-workers. keep your head up and try again

Dear belladonna-


I am so sorry to hear that your group did not pass.  But please do not get discouraged.  Keep on going.  I am sure it is something minor that was not covered properly why you were in school.  Contact the school that you went to and explain that you did not pass due to sanitation and you need someone to work with you on what you did wrong.  Schools that offer financial aide are required to turn out a certain % of students to pass thier exam to keep their accreditation.  The other thing you can do is talk to someone that has recently passed and ask them how they packed up their kit and how they labeled things.  Let us know what you find out - because it will help others here.  Go back and retest ASAP.

Wipe the dirt off your knee, get back on your bike and do it again! Now you have a better idea what is expected at the test, I'm sure you'll pass next time. Study this area some more. Inquiring with others who recently passed the test is a great idea.

I am sorry that you weren't fully prepared, they have become very strict in reference to sanitization, sterilization, knowledge of skin disorders, and communicable diseases. A salon needs to be kept very clean. Procedures & specific preparation's are very important. Imagine finding out 150 people who came to your salon caught TB from it. Or imagine you caught it. It's happened. The board of health keeps a close eye on our industry, I know I am tested every two years when I renew my license. I am very conscious of all this while I enjoy creating my art work.

This is but a small rock in the path you chose to take. You will come up against more obstacles, and you will deal with them too. Just pick up your chin know your not the only one this happened to, and like many before you, you'll get past it.

Good Luck....

I do not mean to seem rude, but you had a ton of mistakes in your post.  You misspelled nine words and had alot of grammatical errors.  Maybe you read your questions, but perceived them differently.  Have you been diagnosed with a learning disorder in the past?  The oddest thing though, is that 4 from your class failed.  I am currently a new student, and this is one of my fears.  Does your school normally have a successful pass rate?  My school has a clause that if in a situation like this, or perhaps after employment, your boss does not think you are trained well, then our school will reinstruct the student at no further cost until they are sufficient.  Sorry that happened.

Dear deann


Welcome to the BTC Talk Back Boards!  Please take a few moments to read over the board rules in the green box above.  Not everyone is a typist, but that does not necessarily mean they have a learning disorder.  Anyways, it is very nice to have you with us.

deann ... a little hard core, under the circumstances.  Be gentle ... please.


It is interesting, belladonna, that all 4 of you failed.  In this case, I agree with deann ... your school needs to take a really good look at that situation!  I'd think they should feel respondsible.  If nothing else, BS is supposed to earn you your license!!

I want to apologize if my post offended anyone, that was not my intention.  When I typed seriously, I literally meant it.  Our instructors advised us to let them know if we had a learning disability of any kind of sort  (even test anxiety)  so that they could make test taking more accomodating for us.  Several of us spoke up about testing, and so we cover smaller sections in our chapters so we are not so overwhelmed.  My problem is that I don't retain information well, so this helps me alot.  I just thought that might be an angle to view it at.

All's cool, deann ...

Hairdressers can be a sensitive lot ... we need to be delicate with one another.
